Virginia Schenck and Ruth Cunningham
Internationally renowned vocal artists Virginia Schenck and Ruth Cunningham will facilitate a half-day, interactive workshop drawing on Celtic wisdom through poetry, songs and chants. The experiential event will take place on February 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Mary & Martha’s Place in Atlanta. The cost is $30.
The workshop is part of an ongoing series of programs celebrating the 30th anniversary of Mary & Martha’s Place, a community of people that works to create opportunities for personal spiritual transformation and expanded consciousness in order to support the commitment to the common good.
“Participants will have the opportunity to find within themselves fresh insights and the healing power of sound,” says Edie Krakowiak, Operations Manager at Mary & Martha’s Place. “In these unsettling times, the capacity to ground ourselves in inner grace and power can be a stabilizing, healing and renewing force in the world.”
Virginia Schenck is a vocal artist and jazz performer who has studied under Bobby McFerrin and shared the stage with Krista Tippett, Marianne Williamson, Richard Rohr and poet David Whyte. She offers retreats exploring improvisation and the voice as a spiritual tool. Ruth Cunningham is an early music chant expert and sound healer and a founding member of the female a cappella quartet, Anonymous 4. The two have worked together in New York and New Mexico and are excited to bring their work to Atlanta.
Mary & Martha’s Place is located at 4393 Garmon Rd., NW, in Atlanta. For more information or to register, visit MaryAndMarthasPlace.com/special-events.
